Accessing files in a shared folder on a network drive

June 2013

Note: This information is provided as a reference and does not imply that Juniper Systems will provide full support for the use of any specific third-party device or software with a Juniper Systems product.

 

You can access a shared folder on a network drive using the built-in File Explorer, but it is not simple and does not work every time. You may need to change the network from “Internet” to “Work”. This is done in the Wi-Fi or other connection settings such as under Start > Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > Menu > Edit, change “Connects to:” to “Work”). Then, from File Explorer, you can add a network share by tapping Menu > Go To > Open Path > New Path… and then entering the share. An example would be “\\READYSHARE\USB Storage”. Note that depending on the network type, the “Internet” vs. “Work” setting may or may not be required.

 

Otherwise, most likely you will need to use an alternative utility such as Total Commander or Resco File Explorer as listed at the following web page.

If the network folder is not shared and/or still can not be accessed directly over the IP connection, a VPN connection may need to be established such as using one of the following utilities.
